White Water Rafting

Our White Water Rafting season has finally started. This is undoubtedly the most extreme and exciting activity Sa Forest Adventures has on offer. 1 Hour From Cape Town you will arrive in the picturesque town of Kleinmond – Our Base of operations for the White Water Rafting is here.

Our office in Harbor road is the meeting point and after fitting your wetsuits and safety gear we head off into the Kogelberg World Heritage site. This Nature reserve is host to spectacular walking trails and boast unspoiled natural beauty.

The Adventure takes place inside this floral kingdom. We start the rafting experience with a safety talk, meet and greet and then a short hike to the water. Once on the river (depending on the water level) the Guides will assist with safety and ensuring you are comfortable — well less talk and more visuals – below is what you can expect during the White Water Rafting session with us

1Hour from Cape Town – A stone trow away from the town of Kleinmond.

The scenery is breath-taking as the mountains tower over you, and the lush green nature reserve stretches as far as the eye can see. The smell of fynbos cloaks around the river, as insects buzz and sound of wildlife echo off the gorges. Tubing is provided during the summer months. Professional guides lead you on this adventurous ride of a life time, but bookings are essential. Relax and for a few hours forget about the hustle and bustle of the city.

Kogelberg Nature Reserve a World Heratige Site – is often considered the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, because of the exceptional quality of its fynbos. The reserve has remained isolated and remarkably unspoilt. Its high mountain peaks, steep kloofs, valleys and several tributaries of the pristine Palmiet River create a sense of remote wilderness.

 

Water levels always differ so please phone before the time to check the water levels.

 

NB: We all meet (BE ON TIME PLZ) 9:15 at our Kleinmond office, in Harbour rd as you drive down to the harbour in Kleinmond on your right hand side, from there we will depart to the Kogelberg Nature Reserve. Please confirm water levels 2 days prior to your arrival!!

Rates From R550 p.p for a 2 to 3 hour excursion

So our season is about to start on our local Palmiet river again – only 1 Hour from Cape Town and 5 Minutes from Kleinmond.
Have a look at our “what to Expect” video below:

We provide all gear, wetsuits and guides – the River provides the Fun 🙂

 


The Rafting is not only one of the most amazing and thrilling experiences you will ever have but also has a natural beauty in the surroundings unlike any other rafting experience.

Considered by many to be the most beautiful of CapeNature’s protected areas, Kogelberg Nature Reserve earns that reputation largely to the fact that it occupies an area with minimal human interference. Its exceptional diversity and quality of fynbos means it is considered the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom. The reserve presents perhaps the finest example of mountain fynbos in the Western Cape.

We explored the upper section of the Palmiet.

The Sa Forest Adventures guides decided to start close to the N2 Bridge and worked down the Palmiet — It was amazing. 2 x Waterfalls. We encountered rapids that to our knowledge have been undocumented.

We viewed beach sections where you would have the worlds best picnics in exceptionally remote areas. Cape Leopard foot prints in the sand etc etc 12 hours on the river — 244 bends in the river — 22 rapids – 22.8km

pictures of the expedition can be viewed on our Facebook
